Or read the manpage for 'tr' !

------------------- script ---------------------
#! /bin/csh -ef

if ($#argv == 0) then
    echo "Usage: translate file"

# this line deletes the \r 's 
tr -d '\015' <$argv[1] >$argv[1].tmp

# this translates other stuff the notation is octal (yack) 
# customize or throw it out ... man ascii give the octal codes
tr '\204\224\201\216\231\236\335' '\331\360\366\205\226\373\247' <$argv[1].tmp >$argv[1]
rm $argv[1].tmp
